World War II Bronze Star citation for a Red Cross serviceman’s action during the D-Day invasion

DS as president, one page, 8 x .5, White House letterhead, no date but circa January 1946. Citation for a Bronze Star Medal awarded to a World War II veteran for his meritorious service. In part: “Mr. Charles P. Howard, American Red Cross Representative, performed meritorious service while serving with the 117th Infantry Regiment from June 1944 to May 1945, in France, Belgium, Holland and Germany. Although sharing the difficulties and hazards incident to the campaign, he never relaxed his high standards of cooperation and unselfishness, and contributed materially to the morale of the troops.” In fine condition, with expected document wear. Accompanied by the original transmittal letter from the Army Service Forces, dated January 30, 1946. The 117th was a part of the 30th Infantry Division, which was one of the best in the European Theater of Operations—the Germans nicknamed the division ‘Roosevelt’s SS.’ They landed at Normandy five days after D-Day and spearheaded Operation Cobra to punch through German defenses. Given the amount of combat the 117th was involved in, Howard must have aided countless soldiers while attached to the regiment. A superb WWII–related document from the president who ended the war. Pre-certified PSA/DNA.
